The smell of open water

The three of us got together last Sunday to suss out the final preparations. Figuring out who’s picking up who, when and where, that sort of thing. There are a few items remaining to be purchased, borrowed or otherwise finagled, but for the most part, we are ready to go.

I think I speak for Steve and Kiwi, as well as for myself, that it has been a long time in the works and we’re excited to get some ocean underneath us. I can hear the sound of the sea lions barking and the waves beating against the shore. I can smell the open water ahead and I am looking forward to what we’ll find.

    Hi Ken
    I am one of a group of Canadian artists for the breaking wave project – see http://www.breakingwave.ca
    We collect drift lumber to make wave sculptures to draw attention to ocean pollution. We would like to collect Tusanmi debris, specifically lumber bits, to make a wave sculpture for a festival in the US. Is there any way we can access the wooden Tsusnami wreckage that you found to salvage as part of our sculpture???
